WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The Junior League of Wichita Falls members spent Saturday morning at Market Street collecting for their 7th annual Food Fight drive. Each year the nonprofit donates to the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.

This year they handed over 10,000 pounds of water, can goods, and other staple items that will go towards helping even more families than the hundreds the food bank already serves.

“In our community, one out of four families is food scarcity and so we see a need as the junior league help step in and stock those shelves for the food bank. So they can continue doing a great job giving back to our community,” said Crystal Short, member of The Junior League of Wichita Falls.

The Junior League also partnered with 83 other businesses in the Wichita Falls community to be drop off points to collect even more food.
